How to Customize Requirement Types (SysML Guide)?

Users can record and present requirements as boxes visually through requirement modeling. The name of requirements summarizes the requirement while a set of attributes defines the requirement. The default requirement box enables users to specify general attributes, such as ID, source, kind, verify method, risk and status. Moreover, you can customize your own requirement types that contain attributes related to your domain.

Before creating new Requirement type, create a new SysML requirement diagram or open your target requirement diagram where you want to customize your our own requirement types. Select Windows, then click Configuration > Configure Requirements... from the toolbar.
